She Bends is the first and only collective of women bending their own neon.

We are pushing the boundaries of our medium beyond the confines of commercial signage. She bends was started out of a need for support among womxn benders. We foster an ethos of community over competition and believe it is our responsibility to move this craft forward towards sustainability & diversity.

Our traveling exhibition creates a stage for womxn benders to share their work with communities around the nation and focuses on programming that educates the public on this storied medium. These shows also provide us with a platform to celebrate womxn who may not be bending their own glass but are taking swings at the glass ceiling in their respective fields.

Join us for our November San Francisco edition, where our intimate exhibit will be focusing on a select California She Bends artists and focusing on programming such as our salon dinner, neon demos, film screening, & panel talk

This show is graciously made possible by Topo Chico.

Thank you to our host sponsor, Timbuk2
